I dont think we need to distinguish between the 2, there are examples on 
extending and embedding as well as existing projects that can be used as 
a reference.

If people show some initiative Im sure they can get some code started 
and then work through some of their problems on their own.

If they cant find answers from searching and looking at the API docs 
this list would be the place to ask.

Personally I have found the basics are well documented, its when your 
putting together an API and doing some more obscure stuff that 
discussing these topics on a list would help.

Since its hard to get help on this topic I dont want to be too exclusive 
and turn away people with valid questions related to the Py/C api.
